Catania - Eating
The cuisine in the Catania region is just like in the rest of Sicily – a delectable combination of Italian and Mediterranean cooking. The food is both tasty and healthy. Fish and seafood are the dominant ingredients, complemented by olive oil and wine from the mountains around Etna.
Ristorante Ambasciata Del Mare
Traditional Italian fish and seafood dishes are served in a stylish atmosphere, complete with white washed walls and dark furniture. On the pricier side.
Costa Azzura gets both its name and its menu from the sea. It also has great views of the harbour in the northern part of Catania.
Oxidiana also does fish – namely sushi. Oxidiana is not only a restaurant, but also a whole philosophy on how to live life. At least that’s what the owners claim.
Don’t let the simple interior fool you – this is one of Sicily’s best restaurants. Located in the northern part of Catania, close to the city centre.
The town of Taormina offers more elegant dining. A classic is La Giara. The Art Deco inspired space is popular for romantic dinners.
